"A massive northern grid failure left more than 300 million people without electricity on Monday."

"Team Anna on Monday appeared to see a conspiracy in the collapse of the northern power grid with activists alleging new developments are happening in Delhi as Anna Hazare is sitting on an indefinite fast."

""The government has set up a 3-member panel to look into the failure of northern power grid."

"This has come as lead item in foreign news. There is a reason. Read on. . . . . There is one (or more) unit(s) called “Load Dispatch Center (LDC)” whose job is to keep the power problem local to one area for short duration, and to ensure that it does not become widespread and for long duration. Properly planned/ financed/ maintained LDC can take care of over drawl by anyone, as well as fault in any place, thunderstorm, uprooted towers, tripped units, fault with cables, instrument, computers. . . . It can fail only if there are several faults occurring simultaneously in different regions, which can happen once in 40-50 years, sabotage, nuclear attack etc;...."

Makes you wonder how our ancestors made it for thousands of years without electricity . With 7 billion today people I guess they did alright.

Unless it truly is global warming and were getting hotter.

Down in the south Lousiana USA, they kept cool thru the heat and humidity with only hand held fans theyd wave in their faces. I stayed one summer night in a house with no AC and no fan and it was a long night for me. I basically slept in my sweat and had bad dreams.

.They said they grew up that way. Thats just the way it was.

The way the native Americans would do it is they migrated when the seasons changed, like birds do..

They would move to warm states during the winter and cool states during the summer

I know a few retirees that own two homes to switch during the seasons.

Makes sense to me..
